About damn aliens, that's right… Man, this is hard if
you try to not spoiler anything. This film gets a lot of criticism
from people that think their critique is important. And they are
all right. This is, what, Dances With Wolves 2, Pocahontas 3,
Ferngully 2? Of course it isn’t. I’m trying to explain to myself
why I like this. Because it’s definitely not a good story if you
write it on paper. Which I won’t do by the way. It has one
dimensional characters. About 2 or 3. People hated them. I loved
their over-the-top performance. For example, there is this one
Chief, you may know him from trailers, that one with the
scars. The only things he says are very sarcastic one-liners. He is
always shown as a badass. And I loved that. I feel like every film
needs a terrible character. You can’t expect films to be perfect
all the time. Oh, and I guess that's a big problem. Because, well,
it is a Cameron film. People expect Cameron to deliver the perfect
film. They waited for, what, 15
Well, I deactivated commenting. Anybody noticed that?
Haha. I deactivated it because I felt like people never comment
here, even if I have loads of people visiting. And the “no
comments” thing right next to every post was so distracting. Well.
There is no “no comments” thing anymore and if you want to say
something, go right ahead. I will read your stuff. Oh, and
by the way. You don’t need to tell me your email. This is not
Spamkotaku, so why would I need your fakemail?
Tigsource had this competition running, Assemblee.
Well, I tried participating. I wanted to release as much
music as possible. Problem was, on this month I had exams, so after
two weeks of trying to make music, I stopped doing anything music
related and started learning shit.
So I just finished 3 songs and promised stuff I didn’t
deliver. Makes me quite sad. But I guess the music is good.
Yesterday I’ve watched this documentary about Penny Arcade. I
guess it’s a well made documentary and it colors me prejudice. Such
an incredible work environment. If you are done working, try
playing these new games please, we should know what their problems
are to make fun of em. But oh well, 2Player Productions seem to be
huge chiptune nerds, so naturally the soundtrack of that docu is
chiptune. One song catched my attention really hard though. This
one right here. Don’t mind the dumb imagery. That song is just so
mind-blowing. And it’s just 4 minutes of the same melody over and
over again. And still I never get bored of it. This song kind of
drags me back into chiptune. And my main problem about chiptune
always was that I’m not good at making chiptune. The
attempts I have usually end up in being a shitty melody with
terrible excuses of drum sets. I would love to make chiptune, but I
always feel like it’s hard to make it sound good. Maybe I always
forget how not really rele
I’m trying to find a way to upload music through Live Writer
too. So I don’t even need to touch the ftp anymore. Let’s see if I
find a good solution. Download?
Yeah, Microsoft software, evil. Boo. I guess I was searching
for a long while for a good blog writing software outside the
internet, so I don’t always need to visit wp-admin. This program I
can start instantly, write shit, press enter, call it a day.
Online, I have to start a browser, type in my url, or at least
press on the favs to get to the Dashboard. In there, I have to
click on post and new. I dunno, it’s kind of tedious and too slow
for me. If I want to write a blog entry, I want it to happen
instantly, so that’s why I kinda found this Microsoft product. Not
that there’s anything evil about Microsoft, but it really surprised
me that there isn’t anything equally good. Well. Let’s try adding
images and see how that works and where it uploads it. Hah. Wow.
That was surprisingly easy. Okay, I’m impressed.
Tigsource has an assemblee competition. That means some
people made all sorts of assets for one month and now people have
one month of time to make games out of those assets and only out of
I was bored and thought we could make a competition that rips
off the music. So far there are only two entries, one of them is
I stole stuff from a guy called feeblethemighty.
I should definitely regulary update this blog again.
A friend of mine started making music recently. And just
because I like collaborations, I asked him if he could send me a
project file of a song he thought was best. I made this version out
of what he gave me. Total fun. Thanks Jsticker.
Holy shit, I made a game.
It features a 10 minute ambient soundtrack.
Click on the image to get the game. By the way, this was an
entry of Ludum Dare 16, my first Ludum Dare, my first ever finished
Oh yes. Before I forget it. This album here. Enjoy and shit.
I'll upload it at random sources later, but the most
important links are
THAT ONE for the mp3 v0 version
THAT ONE for a flac version
Got Komplete now. Man, the package is incredibly heavy.
I swear, the manuals are like 3 kilograms.
And well, that means I will probably just check out all the
programs, read some of the manuals and go to bed. So I won't do
Eh? Stop waking me up.
Uh. Eh. I think I did a song for a secret game yesterday.
Yes, I did that. It worked out perfectly. I'm very happy with the
Aaand I think I am still totally into Minecraft. A lot of
people were against my music, but I will continue this style, but
will have songs with different emotions, so maybe in the future
administrators can choose their setting. Furthermore there will me
other game modes. They will be a lot easier to find a music style
for. And mostly they will be different. Less ambientish and
blahblah. By the way, I can't do anything yet for all the sound.
But I will work on it as soon as Notch gives me the POWER.
Oh. And I bought Komplete 5
Yeah, expensive crap. But it was cheaper this month. Like 800
dollars less. That cheaper.
